In an interview with Norwegian TV channel Viaplay, he was asked about whether United will sign anybody from Borussia Dortmund in the summer and answered: “I'm good at math, but I can't answer that question. There are many good footballers on many teams.
But, providing a broader overview of United's transfer plans, he said: "When anything is in front of us shouting that it is sensible, from both a sporting and a financial viewpoint — I know we're going to try, but you can't make any promises.
“We've [him & the owners] had a good dialogue the entire time, and we've had a plan for it since I signed in March .
“The three months of lockdown and for how long we'll have to play in front of empty stands, if we'll play in the Champions League next season. There are many things like that which will be factors in terms of what we can do when the season is over.”
There's no doubt Solskjaer wants to sign Sancho this summer, but the crazy valuation of the winger is starting to become an problem for United.
The Red Devils is considered as the winger’s ‘only option’ to sign for in the summer, but it’ll be a long negotiation process to get a deal done. Sancho recently ended a terrific Bundesliga season with Dortmund, scoring 17 goals and assisting 16 for the German side.
